Margraviate of Susa

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Kingdom of Italy (781-1014) with the Margraviate of Susa

The Markgrafschaft Susa was built around 940/945 when it Arduin Glabro, Count of Auriate and later Marquis of Turin , managed the Saracens from the Valle di Susa distribute, and thus the above the town of Susa lying Alpine pass at Mont Cenis again made usable. It was this military importance that justified the title Margraviate. The area was inherited within the Arduins family until it came to the aspiring House of Savoy through marriage in the mid-11th century . Passing the margraviate on to Friedrich von Lützelburg and his son did not last.
